Speaker of the House Saiki has been busy keeping UHPA informed on the issues before the House over the past two years.  He has continued to engage UHPA in conversations to provide input on important issues that impact faculty.  The work on behalf of the faculty demonstrates his understanding of the issues pertaining to the University of Hawai`i system and economic issues confronting UH and the UH faculty that we represent.  We have appreciated working with him over the years.
